Nuud: the vegan friendly, eco-friendly alternative to deodorant.

Some studies suggest traditional spray deodorants and even roll on deodorants can be harmful to your health. Nuud aims to provide a healthy alternative.

Experts have warned that over-using spray deodorants can lead to the inhalation of chemicals from the aerosols. These chemical can cause allergic skin reactions, asthma and breathing difficulties. In extreme cases the overuse of spray deodorant can even cause death as the gasses in the can can attack the lungs.

There are also other, unsubstantiated rumours I have to admit, that toxins in traditional deodorants can cause diseases such as cancer. I don’t think there’s any clear evidence of this. However wouldn’t you feel better using Nuud a deodorant that doesn’t use aluminium, parabens, artificial fragrances alcohol or vague chemicals.


Environmental impact of traditional deodorants

An abstract from the NY times  suggests that deodorants and other perfume based cosmetics are causing as much pollution as cars and trucks. according to a study published in the journal Science.

This is another reason for using an environmentally friendly product such as Nuud. Not only does it not contain any harmful chemicals, it is sustainably produced and comes in a sugar cane tube and biodegradable cardboard box. They also claim to have CO2 neutral distribution.

Vegan and cruelty free

On top of the environmental benefits Nuud is also vegan friendly and has not been tested on animals.

All in all I think Nuud is definitely worth checking out. You can find them here
